DISAPPOINTING! Nothing like they used to be
Thin, hard, and not that nice air filled crunch. They taste cheap or low quality flour used now. I loved Saos, they were so versatile. I haven’t had them for a number of years, and as they are now, I won’t be buying again
sao biscuits taste like pet food
My Grandfather was personal friends with original Mr Arnott and told him that he made Sao biscuits for the Salvation Army Organisation hence it's name, and all the profit from these biscuits were to go to that organisation. Does It? The only thing lacking is the butter or shortening making them tasteless and no better than pet food and can Arnotts make their biscuits any thinner? I don't think so. In a word they are disgusting!
SAO quality has gone to the dogs with is cardboard wafer thin biscuit of late.
SAO quality has gone to the dogs with is cardboard wafer thin biscuit of late. Very disappointing to see this product quality now below the knock off brands found at Woolworths Home brand and Coles own brand.
Taste is compared to cardboard, and not the usual tasty snack that is crunchy and wholesome the consumer has gown to like.
Arnotts have ruined yet another biscuit
So far Arnott's have ruined as far as I know Arnott's shapes, lattice and now the Sao, search Sao biscuit on Youtube and watch the video, now go and have a Sao from the cupboard and you will see the "new" Sao is about half the thickness and is not fluffy at all and tastes like cardboard, well done Arnott's, you've successfully destroyed another Aussie icon! (BTW you will NEVER find Sao's on special either)
Best Aussie Biscuit
We grew up on these plain biscuits and the generic brands don't come within cooee of being able top this classic. Who doesn't like a Sao with cheese and tomato? Versatile, crisp and the best big biscuit around for snacks, lunches, bases for sweet slices and perfect for school lunches.
Arnott's Sao's have been around for as long as I can remember. With such a high quality, great tasting product, its no wonder why. Each cracker is so crisp and you can load it up with whatever topping you like! I usually have mine with cheese and tomato, and I love that the cracker doesn't go soggy, because its so thick.
An inexpensive, great tasting, readily available product.
